    Hi all,

     

    In order to park 2 cars into our drive, one of them (not the RS) has to have the front wheels sat on grass. I assume that this is bad for the underside of the car and creates tyre indents into the grass itself. Have any of you guys used any solution for this like the heavy duty rubber mats like – https://www.grassform.co.uk/buy/pavelok/ ??

     

    Thanks

    Neighbours next to my outlaws, have something similar to those, they seem to work well. Occasionally we see them lift them under fill with gravel and replace them.

    Or if leaving a car parked on grass, how long is too long!? A day? A week?

    64000$ question…….. depends on how hard the soil is, how much it rains etc, it could take a few a few days or even a week before the wheels start to sink. Anyone near by parked on the grass to give you an idea!

    Those grass form things are good if you really want to keep grass but to stand up to daily car parking it will need a good 100mm of hardcore under the soil, grass and grass form or it will also sink over time. Personally I’d just extend the drive as the price would be the same or similar if you do it properly.
